Prawn Nebula in Natural Color thumbnail
10-Aug-2018
IC 4628, sometimes known as The Prawn Nebula, is an emission nebula located around 6000 light-years away in the constellation Scorpius

Shapley 1 Planetary Nebula thumbnail
04-Jun-2018
Shapley 1 is a planetary nebula in the southern sky with a magnitude 14 white dwarf at it's center. It is approximately 4900 light years away, and one third of a light year across.

Snake Nebula thumbnail

The Snake Nebula (also known as Barnard 72) is a small but S-shaped dust lane that snakes out in front of the Milky Way star clouds.

NGC 2736 - The Pencil Nebula thumbnail

NGC 2736, known as the Pencil Nebula is a part of the supernova remnants from the Vela pulsar, 815 light years away.

On the Shoreline of the Lagoon thumbnail

Next to the Lagoon Nebula, there lies the often overlooked collection of absorption, reflection and emission nebulae: NGC 6559, IC 1274, IC 1275, IC 4684, IC 4685, Barnard 303, LDN 227, LDN 213, and planetary nebula PN M 1-41.

Trifid Nebula in HaLRGB thumbnail
03-Aug-2016
Almost everyone has a go at imaging the Trifid nebula, which is composed of 3 different type of nebulae; emission, reflection, and absorption. When I noticed some faint red glow in the background, I decided to try integrating some long hydrogen emission line frames to see if I could get any structure out of it. I'm quite happy with the resulting background structures!

Gum 15 / RCW 32 Hydrogen Emission Nebula thumbnail
22-Jan-2016
Gum 15 is a cloud of hydrogen gas 3,000 light-years from Earth. It is shaped by aggressive winds flowing from the stars within and around it.

Animation of Lagoon Nebula Reprocessing Stages thumbnail
11-Dec-2015
Often I like to see how an image is processed from start to finished. Presented in this animation are the main processing steps in sequence from my reprocessed image of the Lagoon Nebula.

Horsehead Nebula in Hydrogen Alpha thumbnail
11-Nov-2015
I decided to take advantage of the only clear night for over a week to play with some new toys: an Astronomik 6nm Hα filter, and a Starlight Xpress adaptive optics unit. After learning how to calibrate and use the AO, I settled on the Horsehead Nebula as my target.

Molecular Clouds Barnard 92 and Barnard 93 thumbnail
04-Sep-2019
The dark molecular clouds of Barnard 92 (center) and 93 (left) are superimposed over the Messier 24 Sagittarius Star Cloud.

Narrowband Lagoon Nebula thumbnail
27-Aug-2019
The Lagoon Nebula is an active stellar nursery spanning 60 light years across. This false color photograph shows the interplay of three gasses: hydrogen-alpha in green, sulfur-II in red, and oxygen-III in blue.

The Butterfly Cluster thumbnail
07-Jul-2019
The Butterfly Cluster, Messier 6, is an open cluster of hot blue stars with the brightest member being an orange giant star. Behind the cluster is the orange light of the Milky Way, and a beautiful cloud of excited Hydrogen alpha gas.

Bipolar Nebula NGC 6164 thumbnail
02-Jul-2019
4200 light years distant, NGC 6164 is a bipolar emission nebula was created by a massive O-type star, 40 times as larger than the Sun.

Ceres passing by the Blue Horsehead Nebula thumbnail
23-Jun-2019
Shown in this animation is the movement of Ceres over 8 hours, on the night of 4th June 2019, as it passed by the outer edge of IC4592, the Blue Horsehead Nebula.


Carina Nebula Up Close thumbnail
